I added a new feature to the template.

Parameter revision

The text can be altered to reflect the changes are based on a revision or a completely new set of information. This is related to the parameter |draft=, but fully independent of it. Use |revision=yes for text saying it is a revision. Do not include that parameter or set it to anything else to result in text saying the information is new.


The template also now includes a category that will be under the [[Category:Construction]] with either [[Category:New]] or [[Category:Revision]].

This means any current page using the construction template will say "This new page..." or "This new section...". If that is completely untrue for your page under construction and it is only a revision of a current page, then add |revision=yes to the template on your page.

I should note that the template will immediately show the "new" comment in the text and the New category at the bottom of the page, before you even edit the page. However the category New will not be generated in the Category namespace until you edit the page and save it. Of course if you edit the page and add the |revision=yes parameter then the appropriate "revision" text and category will be added instead.

Closing the loop on this post. I created the Subpage tutorial and it is discussed in this post.
